What can Cisco Meraki do for you?

Create a solid networking infrastructure

The complete Cisco Meraki cloud-managed networking portfolio includes security appliances, switches, and wireless LANs that scale from teleworkers to large campus deployments.

All Meraki products are 100% cloud-managed, and have fully integrated networking and security features.

Remotely deploy software and apps

Systems Manager makes it easy to centrally manage applications on your iOS, Android, Mac, and PC devices. Systems Manager integrates with Apple and Google App Stores, and Apple’s Volume Purchase Program (VPP) for easy deployment and maintenance of free, paid, or enterprise apps. For Macs and PCs, deploy MSI and PKG files right from the dashboard.

Centrally manage mobile devices, Macs, and PCs

Unify management and control of thousands of iOS, Android, Mac, and PC devices in Cisco Meraki’s secure, browser-based dashboard. Systems Manager is intuitive and requires no training or dedicated staff. Systems Manager works on any network — even if the managed devices are on the road, at a café, or used at home.

Enforce restrictions and deploy network settings

Enforce policies across mobile devices administered by your organisation. Protect devices and their data, control their usage with fine-grained policies, and restrict access to features such as the app store, gaming, and content. Use selective wipe to remove enterprise data from lost or stolen devices. Systems Manager also makes it easy to define and deploy network settings.

Healthcare

  • The Cisco Meraki solution provides a better experience for patients and visitors and reduces IT complexity. Wi-Fi and VPN authentication settings are simply deployed to mobile staff devices, allowing for seamless roaming and connectivity between clinics and medical sites.
  • Sensitive data is protected and multiple devices are secured by encryption and password policies en masse.
  • The cloud-based dashboard provides end-to-end network visibility of the entire network. Sensitive patient data can be shared securely across locations. The increased bandwidth speeds up the sending of large and high resolution files, such as X-rays.
  • Patients and loved ones can stay in touch over Wi-Fi, while the access points isolate guest wireless traffic from your core network.

“We are always looking for ways to set ourselves apart and to increase patient satisfaction. Meraki provided us with a great tool to accomplish those goals.”
